Memorable car of the day:
myself looking under the kitchen and vanity sinks today for leaks. Funny that,
it is like insurance, it seems when I check there is never a leak, BUT FORGET
and when you least expect it, someone will notice & say, “There is a leak
under the sink!”
like the saying, “Has a battery ever gone dead at a GOOD time?”
I know it is good to check the
plumbing every once in a while as well as the battery on the lawnmowers. MOST
of the time nothing is needed.
our later life time we have had some rental properties. I cannot manage rentals
I KNOW I am an easy touch so we have a manager. He charges 10% to handle
troubles, collect and deposit our share.
only one rental at present. It normally pays the taxes and insurance plus
maintenance on both ‘Condos’. These are condos, but until Sister Shirley leased
this side, it was always a ‘Duplex’.
Something bugged Shirl about living in a duplex, but a condo? Yeah that
is cool. LOL
Mr. Hunter (manager) called to say there was a leak next door, estimate to
fix……. $3,500! WHAT? Shucks plumbing the
whole house only costed $2000………. Don’t tell me, Sherry already reminded me
that was 25 years ago. LOL
I will be
looking for someone who can do it more reasonable, or I will do it myself. I just hate to interrupt the renter’s lives
while it is being done, this will be a few days job, possible 2 weeks. That is a long time to have someone in and
out of your house.
PS a: I should be here for one more entry, if not we will
see you when we get back from the mountains….
PS b: Gotta remember this!!!
